This is a beautiful little doo-dad. I use it for my Garmin Nuvi 500 because my fingers trigger the wrong character about 10% of the time and that is being really careful. With this gizmo, I don't have to be so careful and I can data entry much quicker. I also use it for my iPodTouch 2gen. I have one that doesn't detract and I like this one so much better. It's really gorgeous and the shiny silver metal really adds a touch of class. This would certainly be a nice gift for someone. Like if you gave them an iPod or GPS for a gift, you could tie this around the gift with colorful ribbon. Because it retracts to a small size, it fits inside the zipper of a GPS holder. The price is ridiculous,especially if you have a no shipping coupon an then perhaps another percentage off coupon. A good deal all the way around.
